Great Things Come to Those Who Wait : Amy + Tom's Chevy Chase Country Club Wedding

June 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Amy and Tom took their time getting to their wedding day, but for these two, it was entirely worth the wait. After meeting in the musical "City of Angels" 11 years ago, they got engaged in 2016 and finally started planning the rest of their lives together. Their wedding was one of the most entertaining and joyful celebrations we have ever witnessed. 

The bridal suite was filled with lots of giggles, music, and dance practice for the surprise flower girl dance at the reception.  From the stories and speeches we heard, we learned Amy is one of the BEST babysitters around. The flower girls and junior bridesmaids did such a great job helping Amy on her big day, they were all so lovely and sweet. 

Amy gave Tom three handkerchiefs throughout the day, but our favorite was embroidered with the phrase "No Ugly Tears." She knew her love would shed a few happy tears throughout the day. 

Amy put on her gorgeous gown and went to have a first look to her father; he was in awe. Tom, meanwhile, while got into place for his first look, and just like Amy guessed, tears of joy flowed.

We arrived at the gorgeous Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling and saw that the wedding ceremony had been set up inside due to the chance of rain in the forecast. Amy was DETERMINED to have her wedding outside. She sweetly convinced the coordinator to move it, evening calling all hands on deck to help set up the chairs. Her dream came true and the sun even peeked out halfway through the vows!

Like the amazing thespians that  Amy and Tom are, they made sure everyone was entertained. They had dueling pianos, a roaming magician during cocktail hour, a sparkler "love" cake topper, a dessert table, and a gelato cart.


After a delicious dinner Amy and Tom treated their guests to an EPIC first dance. They fooled everyone and had the music stop where they, then, took over the microphones and performed a medley of songs that told their love story. These two have amazing chemistry, voices, and stage presence. It kicked off the party with a packed dance floor for the night! 


Congratulations, Amy and Tom, you are such an amazing couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
